One of Those Days - S5-E9

Continuity mistake: When Johnny and Roy are at the apartment building with the broken elevator, Roy's watch is gone when they climb the steps, but he's wearing the watch when they enter the apartment, then it vanishes when they head back down. That watch reappears again, disappears and reappears until they go back up to the apartment for the second time.

Visible crew/equipment: When Gage and DeSoto are on their first run (the mother-in-law), they phone Rampart's base station. When Dixie opens the door to answer the call, her mark (strip of black tape) is visible on the floor just as she steps on it.

Other mistake: When the dispatcher calls for Squad 51 about an unknown rescue, Roy almost closes the squad's hood on Johnny's head, and when Captain Stanley responds the usual KMG365 with the hand mic, we can see that the mic's cord is dangling down, not even plugged into the base.

Continuity mistake: When Early is examining the boy who had the grand mal seizure in the waiting room, after using his penlight Early puts it back into his pocket just before he examines the boy's ears in the closeup, but in the wide shot that penlight is on the gurney and Dixie picks it up then puts it into her pocket. Yet in Early's closeups the penlight is still in his pocket, and in the wide shots it's gone.

Continuity mistake: When Early examines the boy who had a seizure in the waiting room, Early uses a tongue depressor and his penlight to check the boy's throat. During his examination, in the wide shot the penlight is in Early's right hand and the tongue depressor in his left, but in the closeup they've switched hands. Additionally, in that wide shot Dix is holding the otoscope with her right hand, but in the closeup her right hand in under the boy's head.

Continuity mistake: Dispatched to the structure fire are Station 51, Engine 36, Engine 116, and Truck 3. While Johnny and Roy are searching the rooms for the young girl, it cuts to a shot of guys from 9, and later there are also shots of 28's and 19's guys, even though none of their companies were called to this incident. These are shots from previous episodes including 3x7, "Promotion."

Quotes

[Henry, the dog who is never ever off the couch, whimpers.]
Johnny: [Talking to Henry, while typing on the typewriter.] Sorry. Didn't mean to disturb you. Acting kinda uppity aren't you? I may put you in the script. Yeah. A dog that does nothing. [Henry whimpers.] Just sits there. People like that, y'know. A schleppy dog. You'll schlep out on stage and schleep on the couch. Dumb dog! [Henry whimpers.] Making me feel guilty. Why don't you howl or something?
